Latest technologies of Turkey's textile machinery industry will debut at the ITM 2018 International Textile Machinery Exhibition, which will be held from 14-17 April at the İstanbul Tüyap Fair and Congress Centre.
ITM 2018 is one of the largest meetings of the textile industry and gathers together some of the most important manufacturers of textile technologies from Turkey and around the world. According to show organisers, the sale of the exhibition spaces, which started in September 2016, is continuing at full speed, with 80% of the places reserved a year before the show.
Due to the increasing participation demand, coming from leading world brands, the occupancy rate of the exhibition area grew up to 80% this year, organisers report. “The majority of the halls for weaving, printing and digital printing, knitting, as well as dyeing and finishing are almost full,” they explain. “This shows that a significant increase will take place in terms of both exhibition area and number of participants.”
The ITM 2016 Exhibition was held from 1-4 June 2016. It welcomed 1,200 firms exhibiting their latest technologies. The fair, which around 49,000 professionals attended, from 77 countries, demonstrated its status as the most important event in Turkey and the region, and was organised in an area of 120,000 m2 and 13 halls.
“Having shown participation and visitor increase during each event, ITM Exhibitions continue to increase its success in that direction. The intense participation demand coming from the machine and accessory producers point out that ITM 2018 Exhibition will be the biggest ITM that has been held until today,” organisers report.
